2 Kings 10-12, Ephesians 2
There is so much brutality in the chapters of kings we read today. I struggle with finding God in that. Anyone have any advice?
I heard a sermon on this specific verse and now it has new meaning to me “consequently, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household.” We are no longer separated from God in any way because of the work he did through Christ!
5even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— -ellie
“Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, he embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on his own, with no help from us! Then he picked us up and set us down in highest heaven in company with Jesus, our Messiah.”
I’m reading the message version, and this chapter of Ephesians 2 hit me hard today. We used to be outsiders, and Jesus welcomed us in, uniting us with the Jews and breaking down the walls. I hope we can keep that same attitude today in the church.
We who once were hopeless alienated strangers, have been shown the immeasurable riches of grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.
